A video featuring popular comedian Lan Pet Pet assaulting a man, believed to be a food delivery rider, caught the attention of netizens after it went viral on social media earlier today.
In the footage taken by one of the passersby of the terrifying incident, the member of the local sketch comedy troupe Senario could be seen grabbing the man by his neck prior to hitting him in the head.
Tular video Pelawak Lan Pet Pet pukul orang lagi. Cuma belum dapat dipastikan bila dan di mana kejadian berlaku.

While Lan (full name Mazlan Ahmad) was attacking the deliveryman, three other men were restraining and trying to calm him down. Fuelled with anger, the “Lagi-Lagi Senario” actor scolded the deliveryman by saying, “You’re staying in Tropicana, you want to show off that you’re a thug. Do you know who I am?”
So far, the exact location as well as the cause of this incident have not been revealed in detail. At the time of writing (Tuesday, 4th May), Lan has yet to give any statement to address the issue, as the local press failed to reach him.
For those who don’t know, this wasn’t the first time the 51-year-old had been involved in such a situation. He previously became the talk of the town after he was caught physically assaulting a security guard known as Pak Ya on 6th April 2019.
On 15th April, Lan was fined RM20,000 at the Seremban Magistrate Court after he pleaded guilty to the offence committed at the Desa Jati Acacia Park in Nilai, Negeri Sembilan.
